Action Express Racing continued to control the Rolex 24 at Daytona as the race made the transition from Saturday to Sunday.

The two Corvette DPs of Action Express held the top two positions in class before a late pitstop cycle under caution, while the battle for third started to get interesting between Michael Shank Racing, Chip Ganassi Racing and Spirit of Daytona, the three teams split by just half a second for much of the latter part of the hour.

The battle for the PC lead continued to rage on between the 8Star Motorsports and CORE autosport, the former leading the way for much of the tenth hour.

The closest lead battle of the hour came courtesy of GTLM, which saw its original leader, the #912 Porsche North America machine have to surrender the positon due to a black flag for ignoring a previous penalty. As a result the sister #911 inherited the lead, followed closely by the #3 Corvette C7.R.

Finally, Ferrari continued to be the top name in the GTD category, holding the top two positions thanks to Level 5 Motorsports and Scuderia Corsa, the former even breaking into the top 20 as the hour drew to a close.

The hour was bookended by full-course cautions, the first continuing on from the previous hour, while a spin from the #09 in the infield at the tail end of the hour brought out the eighth caution of the race.
